Help to Buy Valuations

The Help to Buy scheme was introduced by the government to assist those with 5% deposits to get on the housing ladder. The Help to Buy scheme is a shared equity scheme where the Government lends property buyers up to 40% of the property price, interest-free for 5 years.

If you have a Help to Buy loan, you will need a RICS valuation if you sell your property or re-mortgage to pay off your Help to Buy loan. The amount repayable is in direct proportion to the current market value of your property.

Capital Chartered Surveyors and Valuers have numerous years’ experience of Help to Buy Valuations and are proficient in valuation of all types of residential property.
